Alex O'Loughlin & Jason Dohring on list of Hottest Male Vampires
Both of our Moonlight boys, Alex O'Loughlin & Jason Dohring, are on the list of 20 Hottest Male Vampires. However, you may be surprised by where they placed....... Mick St John is #14 and Josef Kostan/Konstantin ranked higher at #8!
Other sexy, fang bearing men who made the cut include ~ Aidan Turner who plays Mitchell (Being Human), James Marsters as Spike (Buffy The Vampire Slayer & Angel), Alexander Skarsgard as Eric Northman (True Blood), Ian Somerhalder who is bad boy Damon Salvatore (The Vampire Diaries), no surprise seeing Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen on the list (Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse), from the same films Kellen Lutz as Emmett Cullen, Brad Pitt as Louis de Pointe du Lac (Interview with a Vampire). Ethan Hawke, as Edward, is chosen even though the movie Daybreakers has yet to be released. I wanna see that too!

The Vampire Craze: An In Depth Analysis Of The Hottest Male Vampires
This may come as a complete shock.
Vampires are sort of, what's the word, in right now. I mean, if you haven't been living in Antarctica this past year, you may have noticed a very obvious trend. Remember way back in the day when every guy wanted to be Neo from The Matrix because he had that cool trench coat and could do sweet flips? Those days are long gone. Today it's all about fangs and an aversion to sunlight. Goth is back. Pale is the new tan.
And really, we shouldn't be all that surprised. Vampires are hot. They don't age. They look good in black. Some of them have inner-turmoil issues. Granted, they drink blood and that's kind of gross, but so are hot dogs and most of us love those. Who are we to judge?
Let's embrace this trend. Instead of rolling our eyes at the plethora of Twilight memorabilia lining the walls of every store, let's take a moment and analyze why there is so much Twilight memorabilia lining the walls of every store. And I'm not talking about dissecting the literary merits of the books (because what would I write about after the first paragraph?). Instead, I want to focus purely on sex appeal (you know, what's important). Costume and make-up designers work hard to create these gorgeous male bloodsuckers, and it's time to give them credit where credit is due. Here's a countdown of the greatest, most stunning, most please-bite-me-now creatures of the night ever. I'll tell you what works, what doesn't work, and why I want - no, need - to be alone in a dark alley with them.
14. Alex O'Loughlin as Mick St. John in Moonlight
You know, once in awhile it's nice to encounter a vampire who does something truly productive with his super strength, years of knowledge, and stunning good looks. Mick St. John is one such vampire. Instead of sitting around being all, "Oh man, it sucks that I love blood and have to stay young and beautiful forever," he made the choice to go out and seek redemption through helping the helpless, err, I know what you're thinking. This is sounding a lot like another vampire we all know and love who is a P.I. and helps the helpless for redemptive purposes. That other vampire aside, Mick's desire to do what's right, coupled with his ability to brood like nobody's business, makes him a very attractive undead American to watch.
8. Jason Dohring as Josef Kostan in Moonlight
He might not have been the title character in Moonlight , but Jason Dohring playing good vampire Josef Kostan made quite the impression on me. Perhaps (read: certainly) this stems from my longtime love of the tragically canceled television show Veronica Mars and, consequently, the character of Logan Echolls (played by Jason Dohring). However, despite this admittedly blinding obsession, I think my choice stands strong. In Moonlight , Dohring plays a 400-year old vampire with remarkable ease and depth. Strutting around in expensive suits, living in luxurious mansions, and taking his pick of any girl he wants, Josef is probably the envy of most guys. And who can blame them? In the show, he comes off as suave, smart, and wonderfully sexy, so much so that he has a gaggle of girls just lining up to give him their blood. And guys, I think we can all agree that there's something to be said about a vampire who gets his blood handed to him not through hypnotic vampire tricks or hunting, but through money and good looks.
Thanks to Sara for making sure we all knew about this :)
